Custom wire-harness and ECU for the whole vehicle.I agree that cutting the antenna might be the way to go, but cellular frequencies are so high I'm not sure there will be much to cut. The antenna could just be printed right on the PCB. I would say maybe open up the module and remove the RF components, maybe it has an MMIC final or something obvious. What about removing or rewriting whatever holds the SIM or IMSI/IMEI so the network won't let it connect? Could you find the IMEI and report it stolen so it gets blacklisted from the network?
You also may want to remove the EDR from the air bag system. I suspect that there is an EEPROM on the control board that gets written to, and you could either isolate the write enable pin or maybe remove the EEPROM all together. Looking at an EDR reader tool would probably give some huge hints.
I think the real challenge will be how to convince yourself that it has been killed successfully.
This is an interesting topic that will probably become a big deal once people see the technology being abused by the state, hackers, exes, etc.
Just good old steel plating, all... 10mm worth. As long as the engine keeps running and the wheels somehow keep spinning, it will do its job.I wonder if Toyota includes kevlar liners in the doors as stock issue on those trucks? War damage hotline even? 1 month limited lifespan warranty, air attack coverage excluded?
Not really. While the concern over data collection by Toyota is a little paranoid, there are plenty of legitimate concerns with these systems.This is bogus thread.
